“By that point, though, I knew that Chelsea and Real Madrid would never agree on a fee greater than EUR40million, so I gave permission to City to proceed.

There have been claims and counter-claims from both sides about why Robinho did not sign a new contract and the way that he was treated and Ribeiro could not stay quiet.

Robinho’s story sucks. As said by Pele that Robinho has not done himself any good by leaving Real Madrid just for the money.

I also read that Robinho’s former coach at Santos hasmade astatement in which he said that Santos Fc is ashamed to have produced a player like Robinho with no moral values. I think he is pretty right.

But I still love Robinho’s playing style, not his personality. And I would be eagerly watching his progess with Manchester City in EPL.


Moving on……

Real Madrid will move for Bayern’s Podolski in the winter market.

Podolski has a new bust up with his current employers Bayern Munich and has said in his interview that his biggest mistake was to sign with Bayern Munich. Podolski is a future star not a superstar with unlimited potential like Messi, but I think Real Madrid should cease on this opportunity if they can, because I still want Huntelaar or Adriano assuming Benzema is not for sale.
